Back again! I managed to upload pics last night then the old boards went away. Here are some pic of the long gun i just bought and the carbine I've had for a while now. Paid $72.00 for the carbine and $350.00 for the rifle
I replied to you on the old board, (no, not the old board, but the new, old, board), also....
That's a great looking rifle, I love the light colored wood. My Steyr long is a graceful, accurate rifle, much nicer to shoot than the 'angry' carbine.
Yep those pictures were taken on our kitchen island. The two pics with the rifles in vices are down stairs in my re-loading area of the cellar.
Currently the only load I've shot out of the Carbine is 45g. H414 in a Graf case. Remington 9 1/2 primer and a 205grn spitzer made by Buffalo Arms. @ 100 yds. the shot into about 2 inches. I haven't had a chance to shoot the long gun yet.
When time permits I'm planning on doing some "real" load development for these rifles. The above load is very mild as it's a starting load for a 225. grain bullet. It WILL however get your attention. I remember the first time I had it at the range and pulled the trigger.
--- BLAMO ---- What a hoot. I'd been shooting an SVT-40 which has a pretty good bark in it's own right due to it's muzzle brake. But that "angry little rifle" did turn some heads!
